SCHOOL & EDUCATION Cape students tops in math and science Two Cape Henlopen School District students, Michael Schulz and EHssa Woodward, were among the 50 chosen to participate in the Math and Science Center Upward Bound program at Delaware Tech in Georgetown, who were honored during graduation ceremonies on April 19. A 100 percent federally funded program, the Math and Sci. ence Center is geared to identify Sussex County students heading for ninth grade who have a lot of potential in math and science. According to Brenda Stover, program manager, "We give them all they need to graduate and then pursue a post-secondary education in math, science or an engineering program." The students visit with their counselor every two weeks and participate in Saturday trips as well as summer programs, which concentrate on hands on activities and scientific inves- tigation. The program takes serious commitment on behalf of the students, as $4,200 is spent on each one in an effort to real- ize their potential. They also plan to employee teachers in after-school math and science sessions much along the lines of the program now in place at Del Tech. Shown with the students following the ceremony are James Kiger, a motivational speaker, along with their mentors Michael Schulz Sr. and Edward Klosowski. Jefferson School class receives award as state Young Environmentalists The Jefferson School's Primary Two class has won an honorable mention in the Delaware Youth Environmentalist of the Year com- petition, it was announced this week by the Department of Natur- al Resources and Environmental Control. Dr. Edwin "Toby" Clark, who served as DNREC secretary from 1989 to 1993 and in whose honor the award was established, will present the awards in a ceremony to be held today, April 26 in Dover, followed by a reception, with all parents invited to attend. Primary Two teacher Theresa McManaman nominated her class in March for their work building, erecting and monitoring bluebird nesting boxes at Holt's Landing State Park. After several weeks of studying animals in their natural habitat and how those habitats are still being destroyed, the class began con- structing the nesting boxes. In early spring the children, with the help of Holt's Landing State Park Superintendent John McMillon, erected the bluebird houses at eight sites within the park. From that time until early sum- mer, the students and their fami- lies volunteered to monitor the boxes on weekends. Nests of other species were removed and descriptions of the children's observations were recorded each Monday. McManaman believes a conser- vative effort would be that at least 20 bluebirds were fledged from the boxes before they stopped monitoring that summer. Since then, many families have erected bluebird nesting boxes at or near their homes and they continue to monitor them and report to the class. The Young Environmentalist of the Year Award is designed to honor the state's elementary stu- dents through grades five whose actions result in the protection, restoration or enhancement of nat- ural resources through environ- mental stewardship, environmen- tal ethics, innovation or public awareness. Honorable mention winners receive a $100 savings bond and a $50 credit toward any school, youth group environmental or public interpretive program offered in the state parks. Cape students attend Community Leadership Education Workshop Cape Henlopen High School students participated in the 1996 Community Leadership Education Workshop (CLEW) on April 20 at Delaware Tech Owens Campus, Georgetown. CLEW is a program in associa- tion with the Hugh O'Brian Youth Foundation (HOBY) for selected ninth grade students as a leader- ship development training experi- ence for the participants. Approx- imately 70 outstanding Sussex County students, including Cape's Melody Mcllvain, Emily Walls, Brian Keuski, Khara Landon, Angela Griffith and Katie Owens, attended. Linda Walls, 1996 chairman, said the Kiwanis leaders felt that since 1996 was an election year and Delaware hosted the first Presidential primary, it seemed appropriate for the theme to be "The Political and Electoral Lead- ership Process." The program included represen- tatives from various sides of the political action field in a panel dis- cussion during the morning. They included Pat Campbell-White, REALTOR representative; Ken- neth S. Clark, First State Manufac- tured Housing Institute; Frances Ann Gilbert, League of Women Brian Keuski, a freshman at Cape Henlopen High School, learns his way around one of the new computerized voting booths during the Kiwanis.sponsored Community Leadership Education Workshop (CLEW) held at Delaware Tech in Georgetown on April 20.

George Bunting Jr. and Rep. Clifford "Biff" Lee speaking to the stu- dents in the afternoon. The state Department of Elections demon- strated the "new" voting machines during the afternoon and the day ended with the students conduct- ing mock elections. The workshop is primarily sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Bridgeville, Georgetown, Milford, Rehoboth Beach, Seaford and Easton, Md. "The format of the workshop is intended to involve our youth in thinking for our future," said Kiwanis Lt. Gov.- elect Linda Walls. Delaware Division of the Arts.
